Transactions in International Land Management is a new series of volumes which provides an arena for the debate of key topical issues on this subject. In this first volume, the subjects divide into three broad sections. Firstly, there are analyses of land reform and agrarian structure in Europe, including case studies from Macedonia and Estonia and a comparative examination of land registration and agrarian reform in Austria and Great Britain. Secondly, there are chapters looking at various methodologies and tools used in developing and appraising land management, including Geo-information systems. Finally, there are a couple of chapters which study urban growth in Africa: one examining a mining town in Zambia and the other focussing on housing in Zanzibar to discuss issues of informal land delivery and management.
